Or you can run the unit on the 1440 watt 110v heat element to conserve propane usage.

The word sacrifice conjures up images of ancient cultures offering up animals or people to appease their gods, or a baseball player laying down a bunt or hitting a deep fly into the outfield. The definition of Sacrifice is a loss or something you give up, usually for the sake of a better cause. At least the baseball analogy applies and so does an anode rod. The Suburban 232767 magnesium anode rod is by nature sacrificial, it gives up itself for the better of the water heater in general. Only Suburban water heaters feature an anode rod.
"The Curse Of The Jade Pilot" sounds like the name of a bad Hong Kong action movie. The 42-0140 (mfg#91603) Atwood pilot and thermocouple assembly has nothing to do with Kung Fu, but it will have you cursing if it fails. The pilot and thermocouple assembly control the burner combustion of an RV water heater. In a pilot style appliance the pilot stays lit continuously and when there is a demand for heat the gas valve opens, and combustion occurs in the burner. The thermocouple portion of the assembly is responsible for opening the gas valve.
Uncontrolled gas can be embarrassing in a social situation. In an RV appliance uncontrolled gas can be dangerous. Any appliance that uses gas as a fuel source will have a valve to control the gas flow. A pilot style water heater utilizes a gas control that allows for pilot ignition and temperature control as well as acting as a safety feature. If the pilot were to extinguish the gas control valve would shut of the flow of gas until the pilot is relit.
When the pressure mounts we all look for some relief. As RVers that often involves friends, beverages, and our favorite campsite. If the pressure gets too great and we can't contain it anymore, the result can be explosive. Rv water heaters deal with pressure any time they are in operation. A traditional water heater heats water in a tank using either gas or electric. This process also creates pressure and if that pressure is too high it can rupture the tank. That is where the pressure relief valve comes in to play.
